Trammell Crow Company was hired as the Owner’s Representative for the Denver Union Station Project Authority (DUSPA), a consortium of the Regional Transportation District, the Cityof Denver, the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), Colorado Department of Transportation and private citizens appointed by the Mayor, to manage the financing, design and construction of the public infrastructure for the Denver Union Station Transit District.
The project, completed at a cost of just over $480 million, is the hub of RTD’s FasTracks Program, a multi-billion dollar transit expansion plan to build 140 miles of new commuter rail, light rail, and bus rapid transit to serve over 25 million annual passengers in Denver and the greater metropolitan region of the Front Range in Colorado. The project has transformed 42 acres of former rail yards centered on historic Union Station in Lower Downtown (LoDo) into a model community of mixed-use development organized around a twenty-first-century transportation infrastructure in an exemplary sustainable urban environment.
Trammell Crow Company has worked with DUSPA to arrange over $300 million in federal loans, manage grant and federal eligibility requirements, and oversee the design/build team to construct the project within the budget and schedule. Trammell Crow Company is also the developer of over 650,000 SF in the first two new office buildings in the District.
The project was completed in July 2014, both on budget and ahead of schedule. In the Fall of 2014, the Denver Union Station Multi-Modal Transportation Center was recognized nationally with the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) 2014 Project of the Year Award.
